Did you know that nature has created plants and fungi to solve just about every problem we humans encounter? From sex to sleep, mother earth has provided us herbs and mushrooms that can be used to optimize every aspect of our human experience and performance. However, even with that being so it often takes the average person years of research, and education to learn how to effectively select and use medicinal plants and fungi to the fullest extent of their power. 

I'm Tero, a Finnish nomad turned into a fungi lovin' foodpreneur. My dream is to bring back the ancient mushroom wisdom to modern lifestyle. 

I'm fulfilling this vision with my company Four Sigmatic.

Our guest Tero Isokauppila takes us on a journey into the heart of nature-based wisdom and shows us how to harness it and apply it to our lives in very simple, down-to-earth terms. By sharing his journey from the Finnish countryside as a youth, to traveling the world to study the most powerful herbs and lifestyle practices the world has to offer, Tero weaves a funny, inspiring, and educational tapestry of lifestyle design. 

If you know someone who is interested in living a healthy, happy, and adventurous life do them a favor and share this exciting episode with them now.
